Our “Queerly I Do” series is our look at what is going on in the world of gay marriage or LGBTQ weddings, with a southern twist. Why did the queer community push so hard for marriage in the first place, were there other fights we should have been focusing on, and should LGBTQ people participate in such a cis/straight institution in the first place? 

In our last episode of the series we talk to Dr. Mary Bernstein, Professor of Sociology at the University of Connecticut. She is an expert on LGBTQ social movements, as well as movement intersectionality on issues of race, gender identity, and sexual orientation, and gun violence prevention advocacy. Mary was a joy for Aubree to talk to and we greatly appreciate her time.
